Forum user Bridgestone Dueller reviews

Currently have almost 27k on the Michelin Lattitude RFT, they have worn ok with rotation however they have been getting noisier since about 16k in miles, Are the Bridgestone Dueller
HL400 not the HP version that bad, the Bridgestones are about 120 dollars less than the Michelins , the Michelins have not impressed me at all, Tire rack reviews are not that great but they could also be lumped in with the other version of this tire, what is the opinions of this tire from forum members who have this tire ? Is the Michelin really worth 120 dollars more per tire ?

I ran up 35k miles on my stock 18 duellers. No complaints except for later in their life stage hydroplaning was more noticeable, although still not dangerous by any means. I rotated every oil change and still had about 5-8k left on the m when I upgraded my wheels from stock.

Bump. How are the tires wearing for everyone? I'm at a little over 2 years. 17.5k miles on it. I still have another 10k or so until I can finally dump them.

My father's 2012 Toyota has a VERY similar set of Bridgestone RFTs on his car (18in Turanza RFTs versus the 18in Dueler RFTs on the X5). He's a little past 21k miles (in one year too!) and they are done. They were rotated every 5k. The Toyota's RFTs have a higher treadwear rating (400 versus 300), yet the BMW's tires are wearing significantly better and will last longer.

Any thoughts on this? The X5 is heavier and I do way more city driving, compared to the Toyota, which was all highway miles.

Mine are at 43k miles right now with life still in them. I might be able to get 50,000 miles out of them if I take them down to the thread bars. I probably switch out sooner than that though, as they are becoming very very noisy.

I've been rotating them about every 6,000 miles and drive mostly highway.

I have over 13k on the Duellers, I rotated them at 7500 miles, tread wear is perfect, all sipes intact, quiet and no issues in the rain, compared to the Michelin RFT at this point, Michelin is overpriced, noisy and not worth the 100 dollar premium per tire IMO.

Mine are quite loud at 18,000 miles. It may be a trade off, and you just need to decide what you want/need out of a tire. From what I've read, I'll be trying Continental Extreme DWS tire's the next time around. While we all want the best value, you do NOT want to factor price into your decision with this brand of vehicle.

I just replaced my 18" Duelers today with the same....51k and still another 3k-4k left on them. I was satisfied enough to put the same tires back on for another 50k.

I replaced the OEM run-flat Duelers at 20,000 miles. They started to become noisy at 8,000 miles and just got louder and louder. The fronts were well worn down but the rears would have gone another 5,000 miles or so. My X5 with the M Sport package has staggered fronts and rears so rotating was not possible.

I replaced the Bridgestones with Continental DWS's along with a compact spare. I run them at 40psi to achieve the same turn in crispness as the Duelers. The DWS is a great tire so far--4,000 miles and counting.

I have replaced the original Dueler HP with the Dueler HL and they are going well so far. Not sure but I believe the temperature and speed rating may be lower than the HP versions, but otherwise no noticeable difference in the way the car handles. We got 45,000 kms from the original set of HP's.
